Disney Interactive Studios today announced that Toy Story 3: The Video Game for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, releasing on June 15, 2010, will exclusively feature content and gameplay available only on the PlayStation 3 system (PS3™). Emperor Zurg, one of the most beloved villains of the Disney•Pixar “Toy Story” franchise, will be a playable character exclusively on the PS3™ system. In addition, Toy Story 3: The Video Game will be one of the first games to market featuring the PlayStation®Move’s motion controller compatible gameplay.
DisneyStore.com has made Jessie (Item #200784P), Mr. Potato Head (Item #200350P) and Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear / Lotso (Item #201311P) from the Thinkway Toys Toy Story Collection available for pre-order. According to the site, Mr. Potato Head will be available to own on May 12 while Jessie and Lotso will become available June 1. As is standard with the Toy Story Collection, the toys are all described as film-accurate and come with a certificate of authenticity.
New characters from the soon-to-be-released Disney•Pixar film “Toy Story 3” are being added to the joyful, toy-full adventure of Toy Story Mania! at Disney’s California Adventure and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In addition to playing with new characters in Toy Story Mania!, there will be opportunities in both parks for up-close fun with another all-new character from “Toy Story 3” – Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear. He’s the bossman at Sunnyside Daycare in the highly anticipated animated feature film.
Even the experts who transcribed the paranormal activities chronicled in the Time-Life Mysteries of the Unknown series of books would clearly have trouble explaining this one.
Since the early 80s commercial for Lots-o-Huggin’ Bear found its way to the net, dozens of confused individuals are now congratulating Pixar on job well done, touting the ad as a fake — a viral video created in modern-day times designed to generate buzz for Toy Story 3 and its so-called ‘new’ stars.
If indeed this advertisement was somehow faked — and logic clearly points to it wasn’t — we’d love to know how the exact same hoax was pulled off at around the same time, half a world away.
Perhaps carying on a new tradition we experienced with UP, we also get our first look of a new ‘webisode’ titled Mission I: Buzz and Woody in which our heroes are re-introduced along with their first mission. The teaser also features a tad of never-before-seen footage from the film, in stark contrast to the infamous Japanese trailer which plays more like a Reader’s Digest condensed version of the film.
The first Saturday in May is Free Comic Book Day in which thousands of comic book shops around the globe offer the opportunity for fans and enthusiasts to pick up a free edition of new and old favorites.
With Marvel joining the Disney family, the Disney offerings have tripled this year as Buzz and Woody join Iron Man, Thor and Nova with each defending the universe in their own special way.
In Toy Story FCBD 2010 Edition from BOOM! Studios, the Pixar pals rally together when a new present for Andy makes an unexpected appearance. Good news and a temporary reprieve for the toys when Andy announces it’s a dupe, but what great unknown will he replace it with?
Disney Interactive Studios has recently released a trailer for its upcoming Toy Story 3 video game for most gaming platforms. The video, seen below, includes some gameplay as well as an exclusive look at the all-new innovative ‘toy box’ mode in which players can build their own Toy Story world.
The game, which will be released on June 15, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com for all platforms.

If you can forgive the wear and tear on the VHS, the poor tracking and muffled audio, this television ad just may take some you back to the early 80s at a time when the Smurfs, Cabbage Patch Kids, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, Teddy Ruxpin, Gloworms, Wuzzles and — of course — Lots-o-Huggin’ Bear dominated the world of kids’ pop culture and the KB Toy Store at the local shopping mall couldn’t keep them stocked on the shelves, try as they might.
Call it Flashback Friday, but I couldn’t resist sharing this YouTube gem with you all. Maybe it’s time to go searching on eBay.
